A website/gallery where anyone can upload his/her art for other users to see and comment on. Primarily, a Deviant Art user is going to find either anime/manga (perverted) or photography (pornography under the category of "artistic nude").
The wonderful thing about Deviant Art is that anyone can upload his/her artwork. The crappy thing about Deviant Art is that anyone can put his/her up.

The best, and largest art community on the internet. Visited from great artists from all over the world who submit their art for all to see and comment on.

It's a site where you can showcase your images and stories. However, the more popular artists of dA gets their art viewed more often. Anime/manga fanart are usually viewed more often than original art.
I submitted my recent artwork at Deviantart.

Officially the NUMBER 1 place to go to for:

- Anime style pictures which have had their contrast levels raped to the extreme on photoshop.
- Pictures of brightly coloured cartoon dogs with what appears to be emo fringes and bling.
- Bad black and white photos of nude females.
- And of course an endless torrent of Sonic, The Lion King and Final Fantasy fanart.

The Last place to go for:

Also known as dA, deviantArt is an online artist comunity dominated by older deviants(or users) with giant followings and people who draw anime and pretend to be Japanese. Despite this, great art can be found without too much trouble (unless you like literature).

It is also a place emos often mistake with MySpace, and therefore flood it with self portraits and bad poetry.
Ex. 1: I love deviantArt. I have many good friends and access to great art. Wowee!

Ex. 2: Dammit! Every time I hit the random Deviant button, I get some depressed 13 year old or some dime-a-dozen anime jerk spouting "kawaii"! GO BACK TO MYSPACE AND 4CHAN!!!

Website in which people like Bleedman, Snapesnogger, kris-wilson or Purplekecleon's became famous, regardless if their art it's nice or shitty.

Is an art community, in which people registers for uploading pictures. Like fotolog or photobucket, but for art.

Generally good artists that draw original art in there are very unknown and rarely become popular. In the other hand, if you draw Sonic art, Pokémon chibies, or fanart of male guys with a femenine look on their faces there's a huge possibility that you'll be famous.

In general is a good website when you are looking for fanart, or a place for uploading fanart. Tracing is allowed by the admins, but rejected by a good part of the community. And not always the best deviations get to the "daily deviation" prize.

Sometimes is used too for hosting pictured of naked bodies showing their genitals. If is a male guy and the account is found, he will be banned. If is a female, photos will just be marked as "mature".
Yesterday I went to Deviantart. I found inuyasha art.
